Riding to the Moon
Riding to the Moon is #178 in the Bantam series and was published in October 1983. It had a hardcover publication in 1982. The Marquis of Ardsley, an expert of horses, is convinced that he can tell if a lady is quality or not. Jimmy and Charles, who hear his boast, bet each other that they can find a woman who will trick the Marquis for three days and when they rescue Indira, they are convinced of it!
We see Indira and the Marquis riding while she is visiting his estate. He is interested in steeplechase racing and it gained in popularity during the regency era. I like her emerald green riding habit which looks great set off against her black horse!
